I’m not in the DC area, but I have gotten six treatments of laser hair removal on my underarms, bikini line, and lower legs.  i was initially extremely happy – during the approx. six months of treatments, I was basically hairless until right before the next appointment.  Now, though, a lot has come back.  it’s definitely thinner, but maybe like 50% reduction, not 95%.  It works better on darker hair and lighter skin, so it worked better on my bikini line than on my legs, for example.

If you’re going to get it, and you’re in a metro area, sign up for Groupon, they ALWAYS seem to have laser hair removal deals (although maybe that’s just in CA)

I had laser hair removal on my face. I’m a light olive-skinned Persian girl with a LOT of hair on my face. Most of it was fine, but dark and long. She said she was confident that it would work for me. I had 8 or 9 treatments, she used different lasers on me, and it didn’t work 🙁

As far as pain reduction goes, she had me put a numbing cream on for an hour before the procedure, then wiped it off and gave me an ice pack. Even then, it felt like someone had stabbed the side of my face and was dragging it around. But! I think I have low tolerance for pain. Also, it was on  my face, which is a pretty sensitive area, I think.

Anyway, definitely do your research and find the right laser and technition for you! Good luck!

I had it on my upper lip and underarms.  I live in Frederick MD and traveled down almost to fredericksburg va b/c I bought a cheap groupon.  The treatments on my upper lip felt like taking a rubberband and twapping it on your face.  It didn’t hurt perse but it didn’t feel good.  The underarms were virtually painless for me.  They didn’t even feel like a rubberband snapping.  I had better results on my underarms b/c my underarm hair is dark and thick.  I still have to shave about once a week or so when I used to have to shave basically every day.  The results on my upper lip weren’t so good.  My hair was fine on my upper lip.  The hair removal works better on thicker, darker hair and I will attest to that.  I want to get my legs done now…..
